five books and i wrote and donated to the library here for a processor of school and two years at law school and i use it for legal history too. so i am familiar with the collection of this library and i know that a lot of it is missing, but not missing but it is in a different part of the... it is a different area of the library and it is not accessible. my research takes me to other state laws and other decisions some international treatties and secondary sources that are not available and, a table of contents and the index is considerably more convenient than the on-line sources which are inadequate. i do use them because i had a lexus account when i was a law student. it was restricted to non-commercial use. and frankly, i go to the library to make sure that my research is thorough. that on-line services don't have the historical treeties and occasionally i reference them going back to the 1930s. and so i urge you to provide for the sufficient space for this library. >> thank you. >> my name is christopher heys and i have been practicing law in san francisco since 1974. i'm not an

that stuff. and the problem is that a lot of the resources that are in the law library across the street are not available on-line. for example, many of the older cases are not available on-line, the data base i subscribe to goes back to 1930. and when i practiced law at the firm that had a library, many years ago, the older law books, the older case books were gotten weathered and i called it getting into a leather when you (inaudible) that it was relevant. the beauty of those cases that was decided before the turn of the last century is that in those days, the courts decided the case in a page or two. and nowadays, it is like 30 or 40 pages, if you can find one that is relevant it is good to say it. and the second thing that they had there was the directorry and i found my dad who practiced in new jersey many years ago back in 19933 edition, i use it for looking up judges and attorneys and the historical use of that is good too. >> good morning, my name is (inaudible) santacruise and i am here m my capacity as a sole practitioner and also the president of the san francisco lasada lawye

a substantial interest to promote in compliance with the youth sales law in protecting our children from illegally obtaining tobacco. so just the background of why this law exists. there is a lot of laws that exist, and one that i would really like to highlight is you see the old time law book here is the reason that a retailer if a clerk sells to a minor they get a ticket and it is issued a ticket and a fine that is associated with it and it is for code 308 and a violation of a law that you cannot provide tobacco to a person under 18 years of age. and this is a new law? no. you see this book, it is actually from 1906. so the code, 308 you cannot provide tobacco to a minor, and it has been on the books i think from maybe the 1880s or something, but it was in the 1906 version for your interest. there are a lot of laws that have taken effect since then that reinforce the idea that it is illegal to sell to minors. so, these slides, i cannot necessarily read, but, many members of our comment can, the reason that we put these on is that we understand that many people who work in retail estab
